We visited Museum in the town like a part of our project. The “Museum of national crafts and applied arts” in town of Troyan is located at the central town square. It is housed in a building from 1881 – the first post-liberation public building( it was school) in the town. The museum was inaugurated on 10.03.1968 on the occasion of 100 anniversary of declaring of Troyan for a town.
The museum exhibits are displayed in 10 halls. There are shown samples and original objects and equipment related to the traditional crafts in Troyan region – pottery, woodcarving and woodworking, metalworking, pyrography, iconography, copper-working, goldsmith, making of traditional costumes, etc.
Our pupils were so excited and impressed after the visit. We asked them draw our town as looked in the past.
